“I always try to balance the light with the heavy - a few tears of human spirit in with the sequins and the fringes.” - Bette Midler

I noticed Shourouk's necklaces while I was browsing through Lane Crawford's lookbook...not that it took a lot of observation skills...the over-sized necklaces and brooches, laden with sequins and Swarovski crystals, aren't exactly subtle. But they are fun...especially for the summer when you could use them to jazz up even the most uninspiring t-shirt.

While I'd love one of the actual necklaces designed by this former textile designer for Chloe, Galliano, and Cavalli they're out of my price range for costume jewelry...they do, however, provide excellent DIY inspiration...a few sequin appliqués from the craft store, some chain or ribbon, and voila...a homage is born.
